This past weekend, my husband and I drove to Houma, LA because his band, The Devil, You and Me had a gig at The Boxer and the Barrel.  It is always nice to see my friends who now reside in LA and of course to see my husband play the washtub bass but the drive takes forever.  About 5 and 1/2 hours to be exact.

During this trip I made the most pleasant discovery, which made the drive quite delightful.  MPB (Mississippi Public Broadcasting) Radio archives past program airings into podcasts available for free on their website.  I have never been a big podcast person but I love public radio, especially The Gestalt Gardner and Creature Comforts.  I was overjoyed once I realized I could plug my iphone into my FM transmitter and listen to my favorite radio programs through my car’s speakers.  We learned so much about gardening and animals in Mississippi.  Both of these shows are informative and hilarious. Oh and I even named the alligator that lives in the bayou behind The Boxer and the Barrel, Felder after The Gestalt Gardner’s Felder Rushing.

Creature Comforts on MPB

Our favorite Creature Comfort podcasts include:

  • Thursday, 30 September – Big Cats (This podcast discusses Black Panther/Cougar sightings in MS and reminds me of an episode of Monster Quest.)
  • Thursday, 26 August – Flies (The expert on flies is hilarious!)
  • Thursday, 15 July – Birds of Prey with Falconer David Hall
  • Thursday, 19 November – Bear (This podcast is awesome!  I learned so much about our bear population in MS.)
